TONY'S 10 METRE BAND REPORT - 08/08/2013

21:38 Fernando Luiz de Souza 0 Comments









August 8, 2013

Yet another poor slow week, odd bits of DX about but generally the doldrums.
I have not worked anything. I had my IC 7600 disconnected for several days whilst we had electrical storms. Still the rain probably got us out of a potential defeat in The Ashes.

Joe, G3ZDF, had an unusual one. In his words, 
“Last Wednesday I worked CA1JDM 5/9. He was in the Atacama Desert which I think is up in the Andes. Band seemed absolutely dead at 21:32z and then up he pops.”
 

Yes Amateur Radio can be a bit like fishing at times and patience is definitely a virtue.

Saturday, Steve, M0STC worked RW4NY 3/3 PSK31, RU3XJ 5/5 PSK62 and RA2FKA 4/4 PSK31. On Sunday OH2LBS 5/9, RA3P 3/3 and SP1F 5/9 all PSK31.

Sun: Four sunspot clusters but none really active.
Soon to happen. Data from NASA-supported observatories show that the sun's global magnetic field will flip before the end of 2013. The reversal, which signals the arrival of Solar Maximum, will have ripple effects felt throughout the solar system.
So we draw the third Ashes Test which means we retain them.
The Aussies will be keen to win the next two tests so they can say the didn’t lose the series. England will be just as keen to win at least one (though just one more draw will do) so they can say they also won the series.
The Liverpool v Stoke City soccer match in two weeks will be the first result of the Premier League for the new season. When we (Stoke) win, we can rightly say the we are top of the Premier League, if only for a few hours till the other teams play!
